October Bank Holiday Weekend Break to Vienna, Flights & 4-Star Hotel, €296!

This weekend break to Vienna is a great opportunity to explore one of Europe’s most elegant cities over the October bank holiday weekend.

Elegant, historical, noble, when you think of booking a weekend break to Vienna, you may think it will be expensive. Not anymore! With low priced airfares in October, a city break to one of Europe’s fashionable cities is much more affordable.

The historical centre of Vienna is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with palaces, museums and churches all located very close together. It is very easy to navigate so you may wish to amble around admiring the stunning architecture, or do what most tourists do – get a horse and carriage.


The former Imperial summer residence, the Schonbrunn Palace, is a must visit, with stunning gardens, monuments and even a zoo – it is one of Vienna’s top attractions.
World class composers such as Mozart, Beethoven and Strauss all lived in Vienna so it is no surprise that one of the world’s leading opera houses is here.


However, Vienna’s music scene offers much more than opera. If you venture out of the historical centre you will find plenty of trendy pubs and clubs playing music until the small hours.

For a more authentic food scene head to Naschmarkt (meaning snack market). This is where locals dine and if you venture a little further to the 19th district, you will find plenty of wine bars and even vineyards.


I found great value flights departing Dublin on Saturday the 28th of October and returning on Tuesday the 31st for just €124. The 4-star Hotel Schani Wien is just €172 per person for a three-night stay.


This hotel is highly rated on TripAdvisor, was awarded a certificate of excellence this year, and is located just 300 metres from the main train station. A blend of Viennese traditions and modern architecture, you can expect a modern hotel with spacious rooms and a charming courtyard.


If you fancy some five-star luxury, the centrally located Hotel Ambassador is well priced at just €236 per person for a three night stay.
